Nothing extraordinary here, but I have added a few JPL's to my collection.

Great lineup! I notice none are stamped Rizzuto or anything other importers stamp. Only Stainless Steel.

Thanks. Yes, only stainless steel and I think at least one has Japan on the back. But, the common JPLs.

Nice. The smokey (whatever you call those) scales on the thrird from left are rare but the swirly stuff on the far left are really great.

I usued to have a bunch of JPLs but the only two I kept were a smokey scale 11" and a steel liner 7" with plated bolsters. Then I kept the two REM stamped ones.

And if you need a Japanese bail for that black 9", I thin I have one.

Someone needs to get a hold of the Japanese to try to get some hostorical info while we still can.
